Leonard, the former two-time Defensive Player of the Year, hasn't played a game since the Spurs' 12-80 victory over the Denver Nuggets on January 13. Spurs coach Gregg Popovich would later say that he'd never encountered an injury like Leonard's during a career stretching back to the early 1970s. He did not make his season debut until December 12 and he did not play in more than two consecutive games.
In nine games, Leonard is averaging 16.2 points, 4.7 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 2.0 steals.

Silva has been sporadically absent for Premier League matches as he regularly returns to Valencia to be with his family. Hopefully, the players will come back safe - without injuries - and we will go to Everton and the quarter-finals.
At this point, the Spurs aren't a guarantee for the playoffs.
San Antonio announced on January 17 that Leonard was out "indefinitely", and coach Gregg Popovich said in February that he wouldn't be surprised if Leonard missed the whole season. Sure, having Kawhi back in that contest against the Pelicans and potentially handing a loss to New Orleans could ultimately be helpful for the Jazz as they seek to push their way into the playoffs, but overall, Leonard's return could actually be a bad thing for Utah.

"I feel better, and I'm feeling more comfortable", Leonard said last Thursday AEDT. Nevertheless, if he's anywhere near the player we saw past year, Kawhi is going to make his team instantly better and a force to be reckoned with in the West. He played nine games before the team chose to shut him down indefinitely on January 17 due to concerns about the way his quad was healing.
The Thunder (39-29) jumped to fifth place in the Western Conference while Spurs slipped to seventh, but the home team suffered a blow after Steven Adams sprained his ankle in the third quarter.
